Community replace defibrillator in Rathnew

The Communty First Responders Wicklow are delighted to announce the defibrillator which had been taken from its housing and destroyed has been replaced.

The First Responders thanked the community for their effort after a GoFundMe page had been set up for a replacement.

The page had only been active for a short time when the target was reached.

A Spokesperson for the group said ” We are delighted to have collected our new AED and put it back were it belongs.

We were overwhelmed by the response from the local
Community with our fundraising to have it replaced after it was stolen and damaged a couple of weeks ago.

The local community spirit is alive and evident when so many people logged on to our GoFundMe page and raised enough money in just over 8 hours to have it replaced.”
